I also would like to see a double-dip at forward like we did last year with defenceman (as long as it aligns with BPA).
I agree with most of this, outside of the "bust potential". I can see it a little with Mantha, as motivation has been a major knock on him, but with Erne, I don't see it. By all accounts, he's a hard working kid in the gym and on the ice, with that tenacious style of play that comes with a love for the game.
